Connectivity of tropicalizations
Pages: 1089 – 1095
We show that the tropicalization of an irreducible variety over a complete or algebraically closed valued field is connected through codimension 1, giving an affirmative answer in all characteristics to a question posed by Einsiedler, Lind, and Thomas in 2003.
